Wili Weber,the man who was with seven time world champion Michael Schumacher throughout his time at Ferrari has warned four time world champion Sebastian Vettel that driving at the Italian tteam will be a lot tougher than what he has experienced at Infiniti Red Bull Racing.

Although it is yet to be confirmed it is expected that Sebastian Vettel will join Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari next season after he revealed prior to the Japanese Grand Prix that after an incredibly successful period in his career which has seen him win four titles in a row with Red Bull Racing the German announced that he will leave the Milton Keynes based outfit at the end of the season.

Speaking to Germany's Auto Bild Motorsport Weber stated:

'Sebastian is a lot more sensitive than Michael, (Schumacher). If something is not working, the pressure at Ferrari is a lot more intense than anywhere else. Life there is not always peace, joy and pancakes... but a lot of politics.'

Since Alonso joined the Maranello based outfit for the start of the 2010 season he has finished in 2nd (2010), 4th (2011), 2nd (2012), 2nd (2013) with the Spaniard is currently in 6th place in the championship just two points behind Vettel.

In the last five years Vettel has won four championships from 2010 - 2013 while he is currently in 5th place in the championship, two places behind Infiniti Red Bull Racing team mate Daniel Ricciardo.
